Hey, Ats family this is my first post and i think its fitting because i love spiders (not that id get too close to this monster ). I have posted a image in which most of us may have seen before while searching for strange things on youtube. They call them camel spiders found in Iraq. I didn't believe this was true until this post popped up. Is this the same creature? Maybe some serviceman/woman in Iraq reading this thread has witness these spiders before
It must be good roasted, with some Tabasco sauce and fries on the side.
humm this would be good protein guys
The French author Reaumur reports a certain young lady who ate all the spiders she could find. There is also written records suggesting that one Maria Schurrman was very fond of them, claiming her birth in the sun sign of Scorpio as justification for her habit. In addition to this the astronomer Lalande is also known to have enjoyed them. However it is mostly women who are recorded as having such epicurean tastes and W. S. Bristowe, author of The World of Spiders reports that although he had already tried eating cooked tarantulas he was surprised by a lady called Miss Jennifer Walker who assured him common British spiders were delicious eaten raw. She ate one after he had turned down the suggestion and he then followed suit. His report continues to tell us that during the after noon they sampled 5 different species.
Reptilian Ph.D I would like to mate with this spider? Perhaps some aliens can assist me in differentiating my genetic bloodline to include spinning of webs and eight eye balls?
Hilarious jumping spider mating behaviour -turn up your volume!
Harvestmen are also called daddy long legs and are a mite. Cellar spiders are long legged web weavers. There is really no conversation here as they are two totally different worlds of arachnids. -DaMod
